Abstract

This article is the continuation of a previous one by the same author who studies the Wichi phytonymy of shrubs and trees of the Chaco forests in Salta province, Argentina. On this opportunity, a list of 90 Wichí names for 83 species of herbs and climbing plants that grow in the same study area is shown and analysed both linguistically and semantically. The most significant results are noted and they are discussed with those of the previous article. In this way, we intend to contribute to the knowledge of Wichí phytonymy and to continue discovering nomenclatural patterns in their ethnobotanical lexicon. Este trabajo es la prosecución de uno anterior de la autora dedicado a la fitonimia de especies arbóreas y arbustivas de los bosques del Chaco semiárido salteño, Argentina. En esta ocasión se presenta y examina lingüística y semánticamente un repertorio de 90 nombres wichís recopilados correspondientes a 83 especies de hierbas y bejucos que crecen en la misma zona de estudio. Se remarcan los resultados más sobresalientes y se comparan y discuten los mismos con los obtenidos en la contribución anterior. Se pretende así aportar al conocimiento de la fitonimia de este pueblo y continuar descubriendo patrones nomenclatures subyacentes en su léxico etnobotánico.
